As part of the new updated release of administrative templates that will let you use Intune to configure select Group Policy settings for Windows PCs. These templates use the Policy Configuration Service Provider (CSP) to provide up to 2500 additional settings from Office, Windows, and OneDrive.

With the ADMX based policies in Intune , we can easy create a policy that sets the OneDrive Know Folder Move (KFM) – in my opinion KFM is necessary to give the end user the best user experience for  a Microsoft 365 driven device. It means that with 3 easy policy settings you can enable KFM for users.


To get started you need information on your tenant ID:

Go into your favorite Azure Active Directive (AAD) tool and get your tenant ID.

  1. Click Properties
  2. Select the copy function from the Directory ID and save it to later

How does it looks like from a end user perspective:

First of all the end user OneDrive verion has to be at least 2018 Build 18.116.0610.0002 I have seen that even if the OneDrive has been update for one user on the device user number 2 can have a different OneDrive version and there for the KFM will not work for that user.

OneDrive KFM - 00

OneDrive will get a new blade called “Auto Save” when KFM is enabled.

OneDrive KFM - 01

The Known Windows folder will get OneDrive Sync icon

OneDrive KFM - 02

The known Windows folders will show up in OneDrive

OneDrive KFM - 03

Happy deployment
